FANTASTIC Trail Fun Day/Competition Courtesy of DeeDee Pierce

Thank you DeeDee Pierce on behalf of all the WickedGood Saddle Club members for hosting this event at your wonderful facility!  There was a total of 11 riders, three of whom opted for the competition phase of the event.  In third place with a solid ride was Marcella Green, on Sparkle (who also carried Marcy's husband Mike across the "finish line"),  in second place James Heckman on his Quarter Horse stallion, Snazzy Lady's Man, a.k.a. "PeeWee", and in first place with a terrific canter ride was Christi Lakey with her Appendix Quarter Horse mare, "Lilly"!

The club would also like to thank Patti, our line judge, and head judge Katherine!

We would also like to thank Marcy Green for organizing "Year of the Horse" t-shirts!  They're such a beautiful color, thank you!

We hope to have future small, fun competitions.  Thank you everyone for participating!

Gymkhana Saturday October 4

Oops - the next J6 Ranch Fall Buckle Series Gymkhana date is October 4, not the 3rd!

Be sure to come out and try your skills. This is a great way to introduce your horse (and yourself) to getting out with with around other horses and arena noise in a no-pressure environment.  You can enter all or just one or two events and you can take your horse around a pattern in hand - like leadline without the young rider.

Day pens are availabe - check with Katherine or Martha when you arrive.
